All I have to say in regard to the proposition is that in Nova Scotia we had a provincial insolvency law which contained a provision such as the hon. gentleman (Mr. McLean) has suggested, and by reason of the way in which it was abused the provision was repealed and we reverted to the condition under which only a regularly appointed trustee can be chosen to manage the estate. We found that in certain sections fictitious accounts would be made out. Certain parties would get together and create the 4 p.m. condition under which they appeared to own more than half the value of the estate, and in any case where they wished to do so, would override the other parties concerned and appoint their own man. I am simply stating that so that the Solicitor-General may know that in our province the experiment has been tried and abandoned.
